No one who hosts a dinner party wants friends or family leaving hungry. Luckily, color is on your side. According to research, the shade you choose for your dining room has a dramatic effect on how much guests eat and the status of their appetite by the time they head home.
COLORS THAT INCREASES APPETITE:
If you want your guests to clear their plates (and then some), think about temperatures. “Research indicates that warm colors makes us feel hungry,” according to researches. This includes yellow.
According to researches, oranges also rev up appetites. But if you don’t want your formal space to feel like Halloween, go with a subtle shade, like cantaloupe.
COLORS THAT DECREASE APPETITE:
Blue is associated with rest and provides a cooling environment, which leads to a decreased appetite. This might mean your guests will be hungry by the time they get home.
Another calming color that might stop your guests from enjoying your delicious cooking to the fullest, is light pink with gray or blue tones.
